Six kinds of household distress:

The distress that arises when one regards as a non-acquisition the non-acquisition of forms cognizable by the eye, agreeable, pleasing, charming, endearing, connected with worldly baits, or when one recalls the previous non-acquisition of such forms after they have passed, ceased, and changed: That is called household distress.

(Similarly with the other senses)

(from Majjhima Nikaya 137)
